|The Assembly was established in 1937 for the Madras Presidency. The Presidency became Madras State in the Republic of India in 1950; Madras State in its current state was formed in 1956 and renamed as Tamil Nadu on 14 January 1969|
Until 1986, the Tamil Nadu Legislature was a bicameral legislature consisting of the
- the Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly, the lower house,
- the Tamil Nadu Legislative Council, the upper house, and
- the Governor of Tamil Nadu
In 2010, the erstwhile Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) Government took steps to revive the Tamil Nadu Legislative Council and convert the legislature back into a bicameral one, but the administration left power during this time and was unable to continue. The present All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) Government has expressed its intent not to revive the Tamil Nadu Legislative Council.
